Civil Interview: The Cast of ‘ALL EYEZ ON ME’ Talks Preparing For The Film, Their Roles & More
by Lupe LLerenas
In just one day, on June 16th, the highly anticipated Tupac Shakur biopic ALL EYEZ ON ME hits theaters and it is, without a doubt, a must see.
When it was announced that a biopic about the life and career of Tupac was in the works, fans everywhere reacted with so much commotion. The West Coast legend was and is one of the most iconic artists in the history of Hip-Hop.
His legacy and persona are forever burned into the culture. His image is so admired that it seemed impossible to find an actor who could convey all that Shakur was. After films like Notorious and Straight Outta Compton were released, it seemed unlikely that a film could present his well documented history in a way that fans could feel Tupac’s powerful impact and presence.
We recently had the chance to speak with the cast and the directors of the film to tell us about the movie, the different antics they used to prepare for their roles, the atmosphere on set, and much more.
